Sure, strat's a great guy and all, but ever notice no one EVER says, "lets get things back on track with CREAM, 9-15-67 or 10-4-68"? Now, what's up with that, eh?

Oh...yeah, nevermind. Low profile, D; good approach. Hope wherever you are, you're not melting...?

Back on track? With an 82 show? I mean, really, what depths of depravity has this place sunk to now?

Gemma, stick around - it's easy to tell fakesplue from the real deal so don't worry that anyone who matters is going to think it's you when it's not.

Thanks for the kind words - much appreciated!

Hex ltrs? Isn't it just a "font" issue? I knew you knew that splue was unique, if not idiosyncratic, but how you figure this out so fast--long before the likes of Tell, I can tell you--is impressive.

I tried to tell splue not to worry, but somehow botched it, per usual...my first post to newbie (relative) backfires, eh?

And, in the process, I learned a new word (term used loosely): "splue", to wit.

Um, I left for a bit, so I guess I’ll reply down here. I find that taking a break from posting can be rejuvenating, and besides that it seems like it is hard to get a noble word in edgewise around here of late. The heat has been offset with enough rain to keep me from melting, and the garden is loving both. And I am lucky to work in an air conditioned facility.

Always glad to know you are around, and anytime you want to talk about Cream is alright by me. One of my all time favorite bands, short lived as they were. Have found and downloaded many shows without too much effort, although the sound quality can really vary.

Let me echo Rob, D--the Forum's a better place for your input. It's so damn confusing at times that I take leave of it myself, rather than invest the effort to sort out who's who (which I used to spend too much time on, believe me). It's nice have more old instantly recognized friends, if I may, than 13 different spellings of Rob's handle to sort through (the two "v"s were tough on my old eyes!).

Sorry Tell, should have responded to this hours back. You're right - it's just a font thing. splue has a pretty distinctive posting fingerprint that's hard to replicate but the solid give away is the past posts thing - just a click is all it takes to turn a light on the cockroach.

He certainly is having a field day with your handle. Tricky business afoot – I even went so far as to copy poster names and paste them into Word to identify the original spelling.

That dang backflow preventer valve needs some fresh caulking. Full steam ahead !

Cream? Now you're trying to get us to listen to Prince???

What about a good 1968 Vanilla Fudge or 1969 Moby Grape.

Cream, Vanilla Fudge, Moby Grape? What is the The Food Network?
